    He never specified a prop for that set up he did later in the thread changed the prop, but the mods were more than I listed here, I read 50 pages of it

    If you want to hit 72 you will need an aftermarket prop. The stock prop lacks in top speed on stage 1. I personally use a skat swirl 13/23 (true 14/22) and I get 71.3 but I am down almost 300rpms and I need to repitch it. Others have had success with the solas 13/22R but it will require some tweaking to get right, like any other prop.

    Here's some good prop reading for stage 1 http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...061&highlight=

    Mike-just a quick thought-im having great results running a 85mm exit nozzle of a gpr on my fz, and just with changing the nozzle the rpm's went up just over 200. The holeshot/mid with the 85mm is way better. Might want to give it a try before repitching again.

    Thanks for the Info, can I remove the ribbon before break in? I wanted to do at least that for this summer, dealer woulden't know unless they pulled it apart, after this summer I may do a powerflow and a FF exhaust.



    Whats the average hours on a clutch running stock wheel?

    Yes you can take out the ribbon before you break it in but I recommend riding it once before just in case something happens. For example, on my first ride I found a broken connector on one of the bilge hoses.

    IMO a clutch should have zero problems with the stock wheel/ ecu. However, clutch life depends a lot on how you ride... so don't hold it WOT when you unhook, let off the throttle easy, etc.

    Congrats on the new ski. 9500 is a great deal. There's a "free mod" thread around here somewhere that has some exhaust and intake mods. You'll need to buy a sleeve to delete the ribbon, and if you do no other mods, I recommend a BOV at least.

    What does the blow off valve do for a stock ski, is it a performance gain in speed or does it simply protect the motor. Thanks
